Very yummy food and quaint ambiance. We loved it. Just BYOB. And they have a rewards program. What's not to like?!

small, reservation advised, family atmosphere. Very good food and service to match. Suitable for casual to fine dining. Bit pricey.

Been hearing great things about this place for years but never in Crestview at dinner time. Well, luck had us driving thru crestview at dinner time and stopped by. All good. Great decor. Great variety on menu. Grouper was awsome. Chocolate cake delicious. Understand why people rave about this spot.

The Wild Olive is hands down my fave place to eat in Crestview. Their chef has her Masters in Culinary Arts and was recruited from NYC. The food is excellent and the service is just as wonderful. I eat here every chance I get! I can't say enough about The Wild Olive.
